Washington, DC — Following Senator Raphael Warnock’s reelection in Georgia, strengthening Senate Democratic leadership, incoming People For the American Way President and CEO Svante Myrick released the following statement:
“This is a great victory for Sen. Warnock and for Georgians. Sen. Warnock ran on a platform of real accomplishments for working families and a pledge to continue putting those families’ needs first. We know he will be a champion for opportunity, safety, health and freedom for Georgians and all Americans. And we are so proud of all the voters — especially young voters and voters of color – who came out in force for their communities, sent a powerful message about values, and cast their votes to keep moving the Peach State and the rest of America forward. At the same time, let’s remember we have a challenge ahead, beyond the midterms and the Georgia runoff. We need to get out and vote, in spite of obstacles and misinformation from the Far Right. Now more than ever, every seat and every race is a chance to protect our rights and our democracy. Let’s use them.”
